I have been looking all over for an answer on this. I have a
simple flex video player app embedded in a website. The flex app
needs to load a video off of a network drive available to the user
(\\network-drive-name\Videos\video.flv). I tried setting the
-use-network flag when I compile, but I'm always in the remote
sandbox, and flex fails to load the video. Is this possible to do?
The website is an intranet video training prototype. The
videos are stored on a network drive or on the local hard drive.
Right now they are wmv's being embedded with windows media player
10. This is working -- but it's ugly and not very flexible.. so I
have converted them to flv and I am trying to display them with
flash/flex for a smoother experience.
I am trying to load them directly to the flex app by passing
the path to the video on the local network drive as a flashvar in
the embed but can't seem to get it to load.
Streaming the videos off the site or with a flash media
server is not an option right now.
